Another step towards an open web -- Google's Chrome browser is going
to support Theora video natively with the HTML5 video tag:

(Mozilla has already committed to this--and funded some of our
development of video support also!--and it looks like Opera will as
well. Video site Dailymotion is now using open video as well:

If it weren't for Wikimedia using it, this work probably wouldn't have
gone into enabling native browser support for it. So thanks to all for
your work on this. :-)
